We will be working with customers on a case-by-case basis to establish payment arrangements and identify energy assistance options.

In addition, BGE will be working with businesses and residents whose service was disconnected prior to the March 13 moratorium on service disconnections to have service restored and help ensure access to safe and healthy environments. Customers should contact BGE at 800-685-0123 to begin the reconnection process.
